Dukhan Number 1 well was completed in 1940.
Onshore Dukhan is a large oil and gas field extending over an area of approximately 80 kms by 8 kms and is located about 80 kms to the West of Doha. It produces crude oil, associated gas, condensate and non-associated gas.
Dukhan Field is comprised of three sectors from North to South - Khatiyah, Fahahil and Jaleha/ Diyab.Oil and gas are separated in four main degassing stations - Khatiyah North, Khatiyah Main, Fahahil Main and Jaleha. Satellite stations are Fahahil North and Fahahil South and Khatiyah South. The Diyab satellite station at the south end of the field has no process facilities and the total oil production is sent to Jaleha station for processing. Stabilized crude oil is transported through pipeline to Mesaieed port about 100 kms east of Dukhan.
Dukhan oil field has production facilities to produce up to 335,000 barrels per day (b/d). However actual annual production is based on reservoir management requirements.Dukhan Field has a total of 300 oil-producing wells, 182 water injection wells and 58 gas-producing and injector wells. According to the latest well status the total number of wells in Dukhan is 605, including all production, injection, observation, closed-in and abandoned wells.
The first shipment of oil was transported from Dukhan on December 31, 1949 through Mesaieed port terminal. Dukhan crude is of high quality, with an API specific gravity of 40 degrees and sulfur content of 1.5%.
